USA 2737 8 Canada vs. United States - players to watch 31072699 Dust your shoulders Dust+your+shoulders USA

The US Men’s national team has thoroughly dominated Canada for the better part of the past 20 years, putting together a 14-match unbeaten streak and shutting out their Northern neighbors a whopping 11 times during that stretch.

 

On Sunday, the American defense will be looking to solidify things and post another shutout to help ease any fears raised by last week’s 4-1 loss to Brazil. Canada has some weapons to test the United States in Toronto, but the USA will still be favored to keep its unbeaten streak against Canada going.

 

If the Americans are going to win the first meeting between these teams in Canada since 1997, they are going to need the following five players to step up with good performances:

USA 2737 8 Canada vs. United States - players to watch 31072697 Clint Dempsey Clint+Dempsey USA

Having recovered from a groin injury enough to look sharp as a second half substitute against Brazil, Dempsey should be able to start against Canada. Whether he starts on the right flank, or behind a target striker, Dempsey will be the player Canada’s defense has to focus on in order to pull the upset.

USA 2737 8 Canada vs. United States - players to watch 31072696 Michael Bradley Michael+Bradley USA

The best player on the US national team in 2012, Bradley has put together a string of outstanding performances that have raised expectations to a new level for him. Bradley was simply a beast against Canada when the teams met at the 2011 Gold Cup a year ago, and he will be called on to control the middle of the park again.

USA 2737 8 Canada vs. United States - players to watch 31072698 Fabian Johnson Fabian+Johnson USA

One of the few bright spots for the United States against Brazil, Johnson has proven to be a real effective threat at left back. It is unclear how Canada will line up to deal with Johnson, but if Andre Hainault starts at right back, the Houston Dynamo defender will have his hands full trying to contain Johnson’s runs into the attack.

USA 2737 8 Canada vs. United States - players to watch 31072700 Oguchi Onyewu Oguchi+Onyewu USA

Onyewu had a forgettable night against Brazil, and the shouts are growing for him to be benched in favor of other options. If Klinsmann still believes in Onyewu, look for him to get a second chance against Canada. Simeon Jackson and Olivier Occean are a solid forward tandem and should give Onyewu a chance to show he is still a capable starter. That is, of course, unless Klinsmann decides to give Clarence Goodson a start in central defense.

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/06/02/060212-USMNT-DG6_20120602155652918_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2012/06/02/060212-USMNT-DG6_20120602155652918_107_80.JPG
USA 2737 8 Canada vs. United States - players to watch 31072701 Herculez Gomez Herculez+Gomez USA

The biggest surprise out of the Brazil’s friendly was Gomez, who looked every bit like a player worthy of starting at forward for the USA. His speed, smart runs and constant movement make him a dangerous threat, and he could be even more effective playing as a second forward if Jurgen Klinsmann decides to start with a 4-4-2 against Canada.
